If you are looking for a downtown hotel which gives you great access to all the lovely things Melbourne has to offer then the Crown Metropole is the place to stay. The casino is located a short walk away. If the gym isn't your style then a run along the Yarra river is always an option. There are great eating out options just a short walk away. If you happen to be visiting Melbourne during the sporting season it gets even better as all the venues - tennis, cricket, F1 are all a stones throw away.

What a beautiful place to stay. We were very happy with the whole crown experience. Rooms are beautiful with exceptional views. I love the fact that you don't have to leave the crown complex as they have everything you need at the tip of your fingertips. We had a fantastic time when we stayed there.

Located on the banks of the South side of the Yarra, it is fabulously located for early morning jogs alongside the rowers along the Yarra. In the evening, a leisurely stroll amongst the fairy lights that line Soutbank, is a fabulous way to relax before retiring to your spacious and luxurious room.
Additionally, the fantastic tram system of Melbourne is just at the door, connecting any traveller to any sort of venue, sporting, dining, business or shopping specialty.
Also keep your eyes peeled to spot many of e "famous people" who also stay at the Metropol.

Room Tip: Ask for a higher floor to view the city lights and skyline

This hotel is part of the Crown Entertainment Complex which is huge and all interlinked by aerial walkways to Crown Promenade Hotel and of course the Casino.However the hotel is situated behind the other 2 buildings so if you wanted to walk to downtown its a bit further away approximately 20mins walk.
Lobby was huge and decor was grey and black with a sweeping staircase which made the lobby rather dark and dim.I only had contact with the receptionist during my stay so cant comment much on their service.Not much conversation took place between us except "your room is" .....and thats it.
Corridors were again dim as the decor continued to be greyish and black.But once inside the room..it was very stylish.Big spacious area with a comfortable bed with plenty of pillows, desk and a lounger against the window.The bathroom was very big and had a long counter top which i liked as i could place my toiletries.Separate toilet and shower also of good size.Decor was very modern.Usual amenities inside the closet ironing board bathrobe and slippers.Nice coffee and unusual tea selections(not your regular Liptons teabags).Aircon was very strong but worked well and most importantly..quiet.
As usual the internet rate was ridiculously high at $25AUD per 24hours and with a cap of 1MB...thereafter which u had to pay with your kidney.
Not a bad hotel and certainly not an outstanding hotel.For location wise i prefer The Crown Promenade but for the rooms Metropol is way better.

The Crown Metropol overcharged me for an international telephone call. They charged me $5/minute. The hotel in Sydney charged me $2/minute for the same call, same time of day, to the same telephone number.

The Crown Metropol also tried to overcharge a friend of mine who stayed in the hotel at the same time as I did. They tried to double charge him for breakfast.

I advise that you find somewhere else to stay.

This place makes you feel like a millionaire.

Great rooms, amazing view, the foyer is fantastic too.

Its a basic 5 star hotel, it has everything you want and didnt realise you did. Its attached to the rest of the Crown "theme park" which never sleeps so you can be entertained 24/7.

I didnt see the gym or pool, but I did try and go to the day spa but it was booked out 2 weeks in advance? which is a shame - perhaps if they kept the day spa for guests only, then it wouldnt be so booked out.

My only gripe is the distance from the centre of Melb, but that goes for the whole of Crown. Its its own city, but i like being closer to the cocktail bars.
